Ben 10 is an acclaimed American media franchise created by "Man of Action" (a group consisting of Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle), and produced by Cartoon Network Studios. The franchise is about a boy who acquires a watch-like alien device called the Omnitrix (later the Ultimatrix) attached to his wrist that allows him to turn into alien creatures. In April 2008, Ben 10 (the original television series) was succeeded by Ben 10: Alien Force, which itself was succeeded in April 2010 by Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. The theme song for the first series was written by Andy Sturmer and sung by Moxy. The theme songs for both of the sequel series were instrumental. Reruns of previously aired episodes are currently being aired on Cartoon Network and its fellow television channel,Boomerang.


Ben 10

As the original series, Ben Tennyson and his cousin Gwen Tennyson shared the same birth date, making them both 10 years old. Later chronologically they turn 11, with Grandpa Max being 59-60. This version of Ben was more childish, rude, and cocky. Dr. Animo, Vilgax, and Kevin 11, recurred through the series as main villains. The pilot episode aired on December 27, 2005, as part of a sneak peek of Cartoon Network's Saturday morning lineup. The second episode was shown as a special on Cartoon Network's Fridays on January 13, 2006. The final regular episode aired on April 15, 2008. A total of 52 episodes, spanned across 4 seasons were produced and aired.

Alien Force Ben 10

Alien Force is the sequel to the original series set five years later, with Ben and Gwen being 15 years old. Kevin 16, a former villain of Ben and Gwen's now becomes an ally, replacing Grandpa Max (when he goes missing). As an indirect result, this series is darker in tone compared to its predecessor, featuring more complex plots and more characters dying. Major villains from the first series including Vilgax, guest star in various episodes. The series premièred on Cartoon Network on April 18, 2008 and ended on March 26, 2010. It has since been premiered in Canada, on Teletoon.Unlike the previous series, and the later sequel series, Cartoon Network ordered 3 seasons of the series, with a total of 46 episodes making the whole series. The series was originally entitled Ben 10: Hero Generation.

Ben, Gwen, and Kevin have been announced to be aged by 1 year, making both Ben and Gwen age 16, and Kevin age 17. With a total of 20 episodes in its first season, and 32 episodes in its second,, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien has been confirmed to hold 52 episodes.
